Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: The ambient 'scene'
« on: December 30, 2009, 03:38:44 PM »
Great topic, great posts. Let me introduce myself: 41, I'm a musician when not working, ambient lover, organizing small Ambient festivals here in Belgium and "active" in the ambient/experimental scene since 2007/2008. Familiar with the known ambient artists I've seen in this thread: Roach, Rich, Vidna, Oophoi etc. For me, it's difficult to say how the ambient scene "overall" is doing compared to the past because I'm not sure I'm 100% up to date with the latest ambient releases and developments. It's underground, difficult to discover, took me 2 years to find out about Hypnos ;-)

What I recommend every musician is to cooperate with other musicians, organize your own gigs and promote the ambient scene that way. Imo, there's nothing above a good ambient gig, that's where you experience the real thing, the deep and the beauty of this style. Take the initiative and you will be rewarded.

tcplugin, are you one of the artists, or an organizer of the event?

I'm one of the artist (Premonition Factory) and the organizer of this event.

PS Won't forget the Frenchies ;)

Sounds pretty interesting, tcplugin... and welcome to the Hypnos Forum.

Thanks. I don't know if there are any members here from Belgium, The Netherlands or Germany but I think this is an interesting line up for fans of Robert Fripp, Brian Eno, VidnaObmana, Steve Roach, Jon Hassell etc Great forum btw, it's good to see there are people on the planet who support non-mainstream music like ambient.
